Thanks for breaking this off into its own thread.

This building has really grown on me a lot, and of the four main HY towers, I only like SOM's 'E' tower better. Should also prove very interesting to watch as it goes up, especially through the middle.

I have heard names for this tower called Tower D or The Corset.

This is the first time I heard this referred to as the Culture Tower. Is this the new official name?

maybe it's called the Culture Tower because it's attached to the Culture Shed?

but thanks for starting this thread! will be more to keep an eye out for now as well as not having any mixing up between threads

All I know is, swimming in that pool might be one of the coolest and most frightening experiences you could have.

I was going to say the same thing. My favorite project of the Hudson Yards.
But the North Tower comes in second.

To me it just looks like someone mashed two different towers together.

IIRC the site for this tower, and the foundations that are part of the of Gateway tunnel box, should be finished within two years.

Update on site availability:

Amtrak put out a press release for their tunnel box yesterday 9/23/2013.
http://www.amtrak.com/ccurl/930/618/...ATK-13-105.pdf

Besides the Amtrak Gateway project information the press release mentions dates for Related construction starts related to the tunnel box construction and states:
Construction of the concrete casing is expected to be complete in
October 2015.


Contractor Tutor-Perini is the contractor for the tunnel box, the Coach/South Tower and is also prime contractor for the overall Hudson Yards. I have no idea if work for the Culture Tower foundations that are NOT part of the tunnel box could start in parallel with the last phase of Amtrak related construction.

This photo by Flickr's Hardcore Shutterbug shows the overall East Rail Yard a few weeks ago.

The Culture tower site is in the bottom left corner. Construction fencing splits it into the Gateway tunnel box north of the yellow trailer/generator, and the culture shed/south Tower below and right of the yellow trailer. Most of the South Tower core is off screen to the right. The not-yet-park E-W section of the High Line runs along bottom of photo.
The view is looking down and north from the recent Ohm Tower.

I don't really like the design of this one. The middle section ruins it for me

Eh, I think it adds character. It definitely helps to give the building a unique structure, but to each their own I guess.

I really like the design of this tower and will be excited when this rises.

Below is an interview from the architects for this tower.

What is interesting is they talked about the process of what the height and width this tower will end up being and they ultimately decided that this will rise to 900 ft!




Quote:
Elizabeth Diller, Principal at Diller Scofidio + Renfro joined David Rockwell, President of the Rockwell Group, in a conversation moderated by Julie Iovine, Architecture Columnist at the Wall Street Journal. They discussed the conceptual and technical development of the new 72-story residential Tower at Hudson Yards, including the evolution of the tower's design and the relationship of the building to the larger development.

I don't see a change in height for this tower coming. And if so, they should stretch the whole thing, not just add the same floors on top.

Funny, I love the middle but don't really like the top. I wish they had "tied off the sausages" and made the upper half blocky like the bottom.
